    effect question

    Anyone know a easy way to do in MC with the paint effect? Ive tried to use the paint effect but it is a bit frustatiing as each line doesn't stay on for the one frame. You have to set the path and with this many strokes on every frame that is a bit tedious. I may be missing something so thats why I decided to ask.

    It doesn't look like the strokes are animating, so my intuition is you'd apply the paint effect, draw whatever shape/strokes you want, and then manipulate it.

    I don't understand what you mean by:

    You can re-select multiple objects by lassooing the entire frame.  Is that what you mean?

    Re: effect question

    The strokes in the tutorial are only on for one frame, the frame that you paint on. Then it dissappears on the next frame. So basically each frame is a new paint shape. In Avid if you a draw a paint shape it stays on throughout the whole clip unless you set the path for 100 on the first frame and 0 on the next frame. Is there a way to only have the paint shape stay on just for the one frame, allowing a new paint shape to show?

    Put your background video on V1. Add an empty V2 track. Add edits on the V2 track to create a 1 frame hole on V2. Add the Paint effect to the 1 frame hole. Paint.

    (In order to get into effects mode on the one frame clip you may have to zoom in to the timeline. Alternatively, you could work on the effect with a slightly longer hole (10 frames, say) while parked on the first frame, and then use trim mode to trim the clip down to 1 frame when you are done.)
